I have been coming to this restaurant every two months or so when I am visiting this beautiful island. Location is great, service staff try their best, however, the food is always a hit or miss,
Explaining that everything has to be imported is not an excuse for sub standard food at times. I am aware that the food produced from this kitchen is amazing on a good day and at other times, its a total disaster. Maybe its time to change the head chef? or just the really lazy disinterested manager. Its just so frustrating that as a client, I know they are capable of really being the top Indian restaurant in Mahe, yet the inconsistency is what is frustrating. Maharaja, you are one of two well known Indian restaurants, please get it right all the time. The location and investment in hardware shouldn't be the determining factor.

We did not realise how beautiful the view was until we arrived. The resturant overlooks the marina and is simply stunning. The food was tasty and prepared fresh. We arrived in the afternoon and unfortunately the tandoor chef had not arrived, so the restaurant could not serve any breads! That was a little disappointing. However, the staff made every effort to offer other options, and brought our food out prompty. A place worth visiting, especially if you are craving indian food!

Another excellent and enjoyable evening in this good location on the waterfront of part of the Eden Island marina. Excellent meal as always and good service, despite being quite busy on a Friday evening. Highly recommended.

Located on Eden Island you have amazing views of the main island and the yachts. The cool breeze sways while you sit outside on the deck and enjoy your food. You can choose the spice level as you like so recommended for children as well. The staff working there are friendly and inviting and it doesn’t take long for them to bring out the food.
